Hand injuries are common in the workplace.
Modern industrial machines cause complex occupational hand injuries.
Hot-press contact hand burns generally are encountered by workers in the dry-cleaning industry.
Seventeen patients with hot-press hand burns were treated at the University of California-Irvine Medical Center Burn Center.
Eight patients (47%) required skin grafting, seven (41%) were treated with hydrotherapy only, and two (12%) needed flaps.
These results were not what we expected.
